Local entries for the U.S. House of Representative’s Artistic Discovery Contest will be accepted through the end of this month.
Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, welcomes high school students who live in the 3rd Congressional District to submit their original artwork for judging by a panel of local artists assembled by his office.
The winner’s artwork is featured at a year-long exhibit in the U.S. Capitol alongside winners from other congressional districts throughout the nation. The winner and a chaperone will also receive a pair of complimentary airline tickets to Washington, D.C., for a ceremonial unveiling of the artwork, courtesy of Southwest Airlines.
